However, I will say, there are more like-minded folks to you in your corn country than you might think.My advice is to keep at it with the online dating..to narrow your searches to a drivable distance for you.As for the ultra conservative corn country - I understand.
I like to communicate with interesting people, love pets and I have a war..What I know is that dating and getting attention demands persistence and open-mindedness. I agree with Joe that you should perhaps give those two men a chance and just let them know up front that you'd like to keep it light and not have baggage brought into the relationship - start fresh.The older we get, the more experiences we have, and therefore the more "baggage" we gather.But, there has been no man to touch, for at least 10 years.I have a fabulous electric vibrator-but that doesn't do it.Why can't you still go out with them and set boundaries on things you do and don't want to talk about?What about going on some dating sites where men are looking for older women?I am pretty and can still pass for 50-believe it or not.Men I meet are just too old and want only friendship, too young and not interested (a good 30 years younger), etc.,.To Joe and Kristen- They two men I mentioned----once I was engaged to years ago-he always expects the worst to happen and hates life-we have gotten together on and off, but I end up so in the dumps over all his problems and his life outlook. The other, is 83, still mourning his wife who died 4-5 years ago, and that can get me down after awhile.Also, he is a very old 83 year old...driving scary...walks and talks old. I have tried the web sites, and found a few interesting--who lived clear across the country.
